    Not sure if this is new or the same. But I thought the lock screen had a black bar where the on screen buttons were.

    Thanks.

    Im digging through what is new. Other than Namey Mcnameface (Easter egg in Dev Preview 4 gives Android N the Boaty McBoatface treatment) I havent found anything yet. This may have been a release to polish up the sharp spots from the last release. Or a release because Apple announced their Developer Release a few days ago.

    In an article from The Verge, they removed the support for pressure sensitive screens (their answer to 3D Touch on the iPhone 6S Series)...

    Copied from article...
    In addition to finalizing the APIs for N, Google is also removing one of the more exciting features that appeared in earlier versions: support for pressure-sensitive screens. What Google called "Launcher Shortcuts" were going to be its answer to 3D Touch, and they appeared to be more-or-less ready and working as of N's second preview release. But somewhere between April and May, Google's plans changed, and it decided to hold off support until a later version of Android. Now that delay is final, with Google completely removing the Launcher Shortcut APIs.

    Whole article can be found here - Google preps Android N for public release with fourth preview release

    Not that I'm asking you to spam me, but I know you've got access to my email PC...

    Haha!

    Email address is bad enough. Totally forgot I had my phone number on there as well in case I lose. Then someone could at least call the number and leave a voicemail if they're an upstanding citizen.
